Megan Fox Will Host a New Series on The Travel Channel Called MYSTERIES AND MYTHS

The Travel Channel is producing a new series built around Megan Fox traveling the world looking for the truth behind some of the world's greatest mysteries. It's called Mysteries and Myths with Megan Fox. Fox is the co-creator of the show and she will also host it and serve as an executive producer.

I've never really thought that Fox would actually be into this kind of stuff, but according to Deadline, she has been obsessed with "the history of ancient cultures, people and places — always questioning their 'documented' story." Now she is teaming up with the Travel Channel to embark on "an epic and personal journey across the globe, where archaeologists and experts will re-examine history, asking tough questions and challenging the conventional wisdom that has existed for centuries. The series will delve into some of the greatest mysteries of time, including whether Amazon women really existed or if the Trojan War was real." Megan Fox has this to say in a statement:

"I would describe myself as a seeker. A seeker is someone who is never content to have obtained enough knowledge. History only gives us a one-sided view of the truth. That’s something I know from personal experience. My own history has been rewritten by other people who had a vested interest in changing the narrative. I haven’t spent my entire life building a career in academia so I don’t have to worry about my reputation or being rebuked by my colleagues, which allows me to push back on the status quo. So much of our history needs to be re-examined.”

Henry Schleiff, Group President of Investigation Discovery, Travel Channel, American Heroes Channel and Destination America added:

"When it comes to debunking the myths around some of our greatest historical mysteries, Megan Fox’s passion for discovering the truth is just visceral. We are as delighted to have her fresh and unbiased perspective on these events as we are to have Megan in our Travel Channel family."

Mysteries and Myths with Megan Fox will be a four-episode hour-long series and production will begin in June, with a premiere slated for later this year. Will you watch Megan Fox go on these archaeological adventures?

Beautiful Concept Art Surfaced For The Studio Ghibli Theme Park

beautiful-concept-art-surfaced-for-the-studio-ghibli-theme-park1

Last year it was announced that a Studio Ghibli theme park was in development. The park will be located near Nagoya, Japan in Aichi Prefecture on a 200-hectare plot of land. We now have a series of concept art to share with you giving us a look at what the design teams are planning. 

The theme park isn't going to be filled with crazy rides or anything. The main focus will be to allow visitors to enjoy and relax in the Studio Ghibli worlds. People will be able to enjoy the nature and the atmosphere of it all. It actually sounds very peaceful.

According to NHK, the main gate will remind park goers of 19th-century structures out of Howl’s Moving Castle, like the image above, as well as a recreation of Whisper of the Heart’s antique shop. There is also going to be a Princess Mononoke Village and a Witch Valley that will include attractions for Howl’s Moving Castle and Kiki’s Delivery Service.

There will also be a Big Ghibli Warehouse filled with a collection of Ghibli themed play areas as well as exhibition areas and small movie theaters.

The park will open in 2022, and if I ever make it out to Japan one day, I will have to go!

New ANT-MAN AND THE WASP Footage Screened Showed Lots of New Footage and The Ghost in Action!

During Disney big presentation at CinemaCon, Marvel showed off a new trailer for Ant-Man and The Wasp that was loaded with all kinds of cool new footage! The trailer put a big focus on Evangeline Lilly's The Wasp and there are some incredibly fun action sequences that involve her. The footage also offered us our first footage of Laurence Fishburne and Walton Goggins. We also finally got to see Ghost's powers in action!

I absolutely loved the humor of this Marvel franchise, they have a lot of fun doing really absurd things and the visuals are what make them so great! One of the first things we see in the footage is Paul Rudd's Ant-Man in his Giant-Man form riding on the back of a truck next to Walton Goggins' villainous character Sonny Burch. Ant-Man is hitting the side of the truck, but things are going the way he had hoped, so The Wasp pops up in the truck and starts beating the crap out of everyone inside. It's at this point that Scott Lang's daughter Cassie tells his dad he needs a sidekick. 

There's also a scene where Hank Pym (Michael Douglass) is talking to Luis (Micheal Pene). Hank says that he opened the Quantum-realm up to a villain known as the Ghost. Hank is going to Luis and his crew because he needs their help in getting something that Hank needs. Luis points out that they are the right team for the job because they robbed him at one point.

There are then a bunch of action shots of the Wasp fighting people and in the process showing off her abilities. Then for some reason, there's a clip where we see a giant ant playing the drums! It was a very WTF!? kind of moment.

We also get to see the Ghost action and this villain has the crazy cool ability to pass through solid objects, At one point we see her jump through an SUV. The way this looks visually is pretty rad as well. 

There's some amusing banter between Ant-Man and The Wasp regarding their different styles of fighting. During one part Ant-man tells Wasp, "You go low and I go high," but then The Wasp responds with, "I have wings. Why would I go low?" So they end up switching it up. 

There's a scene where Luis is freaking out after he shrinks in size with Ant-Man and The Wasp while driving an SUV. And the footage comes to a close with Scott Lang and Lawrence Fishburn, who was Goliath, comparing how big that they've gotten using the technology. It's here that Lang reveals his biggest size of 65 feet, compared to Goliath's 21 feet. It was just funny listening to them comparing sizes. 

I have no idea when this trailer will be released but I hope that you get to see it soon! Part of the story will focus on Scott Lang and Hope van Dyne entering the quantum realm to rescue Janet van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer). Here's the official synopsis:

From the Marvel Cinematic Universe comes a new chapter featuring heroes with the astonishing ability to shrink: Ant-Man and The Wasp. In the aftermath of Captain America: Civil War, Scott Lang (Rudd) grapples with the consequences of his choices as both a Super Hero and a father. As he struggles to rebalance his home life with his responsibilities as Ant-Man, he’s confronted by Hope van Dyne (Lilly) and Dr. Hank Pym (Douglas) with an urgent new mission. Scott must once again put on the suit and learn to fight alongside The Wasp as the team works together to uncover secrets from their past.

Peyton Reed is directing Ant-Man and the Wasp, and it will be released in theaters on July 6th, 2018.

The Footage Screened of James Wan’s AQUAMAN Movie at CinemaCon was Freakin’ Epic!

While at CinemaCon, I had the opportunity to see the first footage from Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment's upcoming film Aquaman. Before the footage was shown, director James Wan expressed how he really didn't want to show any footage at this point because it wasn't fully finished. But, the studio told him he had to show something, so he did, and what he ended up sharing with all those in attendance was visually epic! 

I was completely wowed by the footage that I saw! Wan's vision for this film goes way above and beyond what I was expecting. This world that Wan has created is seriously Lord of the Rings-style epic, only it's set underwater! I'll be honest, I've never been a fan of Aquaman, but I'm a huge fan of James Wan, and now I couldn't be more excited to see this movie!

Aquaman looks like it's the most ambitious DC film project that WB has made yet. The footage showed tons of footage of Jason Momoa in the title role and the story will dive into the character backstory. One of the coolest scenes showed a young Aquaman catching a trident flying at his face with his bare hands. There's also a shot of him lifting a submarine out of the ocean, and we see a badass fight scene inside of a sub.

We also got our first look at Willem Dafoe as Vulko; Temuera Morrison (Green Lantern) as Tom Curry; Patrick Wilson looked awesome as Orm/Ocean Master, who promises to bring the "wrath of the seven seas." Then there was Yahya Abdul-Mateen II looking freakin' rad as Black Manta! It was a quick shot, but he looked so cool and his look is right on par with the design of the character in the comics.

The most impressive stuff that I saw, though, were the visuals of the world that the story is set in. At one point the Ocean Master is standing in a colosseum rallying the crowd of people against his brother who is looking to challenge him to the throne. 

I can't wait for you to see some of this stuff when the first trailer is eventually released. I think a lot of fans will be in awe of what this movie looks like. Judging from what I saw here, Wan went out and made an incredible Aquaman film!

Aquaman also stars Dolph Lundgren as Nereus, Ludi Lin as Murk, and Nicole Kidman as Atlanna. Here's the synopsis: 

Aquaman will center on Aquaman as a reluctant ruler of the underwater kingdom of Atlantis who is caught between land dwellers that are always polluting the globe and his own people who are ready to invade the surface.

The movie is set to be released December 21, 2018.

The Directors of AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR Wipe Their Social Media Accounts Clean… Except For One Video

Avengers: Infinity War director's Joe and Anthony Russo have done something really interesting. Leading up to the release of the film, they've wiped all of their social media accounts clean of content and only left fans with one single video that features a little footage of Thanos with the caption, "Thanos is coming." 

The video appears on their official Instagram account, their official Twitter page and their Facebook page. Every other thing that they have ever posted has seemingly been deleted.

I have no idea why they did this, but I assume it was for dramatic effect as the movie is about to come out. And obviously, Thanos is going to have a huge presence in this film and we've heard time and time again that the MCU will never be the same after this. They are obviously making a statement regarding this film, and when you all see the movie, you'll probably have a better understanding of why they did this. 

What are your thoughts on why the Russo Bros. cleared their accounts and posted this video?

Disney Shares Footage of Tim Burton’s DUMBO and New Details Are Revealed

disney-shares-footage-of-tim-burtons-dumbo-and-new-details-are-revealed-social.jpg

As a fan of Tim Burton, I've been very excited about seeing how his live-action film adaptation of Dumbo would turn out. Well, while attending the Disney presentation at CinemaCon, the studio shared a featurette for the film that included interviews with the cast and crew as well as the first footage from the film, and it looks absolutely wonderful!

The movie has a great cast that includes Colin Ferrell, Michael Keaton, Danny DeVito, and Eva Green, and up until this point, all the info we've had on the film comes from this synopsis:

Disney’s new live-action feature film Dumbo introduces Holt Farrier (Farrell), a former circus star who finds his life turned upside down when he returns from the war. Circus owner Max Medici (DeVito) enlists Holt to care for a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughingstock in an already struggling circus. But when Holt’s children (Nico Parker and Finley Hobbins) discover that Dumbo can fly, persuasive entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Keaton) and an aerial artist named Colette Marchant (Green) swoop in to make the peculiar pachyderm a star.

The movie is said to be an expansion of the first film. It's a new story for Dumbo that we haven't been told before. In the video, Danny Devita explained:

"The original ends with the elephant flying. This one begins with that and goes even further."

The footage then offers us a POV shot of Dumbo flying in the circus tent and we see the awe and wonder in the faces of the people who are watching. We never see any actual footage of Dumbo because the studio wants to hold off on that big reveal. They did show a still shot of the character, though, that you can see in the Tweet below. 

The footage also shows Devito's character amusingly scolding his circus employees for not doing their job and also degrades the elephant. The circus is struggling and at one point Devito also approached the Strong Man of the show at one point and told him that he was now in charge of all the financial aspects of the circus, which left the strong man confused. Ferrell goes on to explain that Dumbo will bring Devito's character closer to his kids.

I loved the visual style of the movie as well. Out of all Tim Burton's movies, the style reminded me most of Big Fish. It's just very vibrant and colorful! I loved what I saw in this little presentation and I can't wait to see more!

Dumbo is scheduled to hit theaters on March 29, 2019.

SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDERVERSE – Three Villains Revealed and Jake Johnson Will Voice Peter Parker

spider-man-into-the-spiderverse-three-villains-revealed-and-jake-johnson-will-voice-peter-parker-social.jpg

Sony Pictures recently screened a lot of new footage from Phil Lord and Chris Miller's animated Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse movie at CinemaCon, and it was awesome! This movie looks incredible and I seriously can't wait to see the movie. If you're a fan of Spider-Man, this is a movie that you need to be excited about! It has such an extremely cool and unique visual style that explodes on the big screen.

There are a few new things that were revealed in this new footage about the film that we didn't know before. One of those things is that the older middle-aged Peter Parker in the movie will be voiced by New Girl star Jake Johnson, who is actually perfect for the role! 

We also now know three of the villains that Spider-Man will face off against in the movie. Those villains are three awesomely stylized versions of the Ultimate version of Green Goblin, The Kingpin and The Prowler, who, in the comics, is Miles Morales' uncle. 

We have no idea how exactly these characters will be utilized in the story, but it will certainly be fun to see Spider-Man face off with them! We did get to see some footage of Spider-Man fighting a few of them in the footage I saw. I hope we get a new trailer for this film soon because I can't wait for you to see the footage that I saw! Here's the synopsis for the film:

Enter a universe where more than one wears the mask. Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the creative minds behind “The Lego Movie” and “21 Jump Street,” bring their unique talents to a fresh vision of a different Spider-Man Universe, with a groundbreaking visual style that’s the first of its kind. “Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse” introduces Brooklyn teen Miles Morales, and the limitless possibilities of the Spider-Verse, where more than one can wear the mask.

Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse is scheduled to arrive in theaters on December 14, 2018. If you want to watch the first teaser trailer that was released, Click here.

imax-reveals-the-silliest-poster-for-deadpool-2-yet1

We all know that the marketing for the Deadpool films can get pretty silly, but this new official poster for Deadpool 2 from IMAX takes that silliness to a whole new level!

Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor – finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover.

Disney is Reportedly Looking To Cast Brie Larson in Their SNOW WHITE Spinoff Film ROSE RED

According to a new rumor, Disney is developing a new live-action Snow White spinoff film called Rose Red and they are looking to cast Captain Marvel star Brie Larson in the lead role. It seems like another role that she would be perfect for. 

The story is a revisionist take that transposes Rose Red into the Snow White tale, making her a key player in the later moments of the classic story. When Snow White takes a bite from the iconic poison apple and falls into her Sleeping Death, her estranged sister, Rose Red, must undertake a dangerous quest with Grumpy and the other dwarfs to find a way to break the curse and bring Snow White back to life.

This is definitely an interesting and fresh cinematic approach to taking on the classic fairytale. There's no director attached to the project yet, but apparently, the studio is currently on the hunt for one.

The project was first announced a couple of years ago. Justin Merz originally wrote the screenplay, but Snow White and The Huntsman writer Evan Daughtery came on and reworked it into something closer to the Disney animated film. The most recent draft of the script comes from Kristin Gore (SNL).

I think Larson is a talented actress and I hope that this rumor that she could be cast in the role of Rose Red turns out to be true. What do you think about the possibility of the actress taking on the role?

JUMANJI: WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE Sequel Confirmed For Christmas 2019 and Dwayne Johnson Will Return

jumanji-welcome-to-the-jungle-sequel-confirmed-for-christmas-2019-and-dwayne-johnson-will-return-social.jpg

Sony Pictures chairman Tom Rothman confirmed at CinemaCon that the upcoming sequel to Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle will be released in theaters on Christmas 2019. He also confirmed that Dwayne Johnson will return to reprise his role and Kevin Hart, Jack Black, and Karen Gillan are also expected to return but that hasn't been confirmed. 

Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle was a huge success for Sony Pictures. It's made over $956 million dollars, and it recently became Sony's highest grossing domestic release of all time beating out Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Audiences loved this movie and the studio betting that they will all return for a sequel. The upcoming film is already in development and is being written by Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinkner. There's no director attached to the film yet, but Jake Kasdan directed the Welcome To The Jungle film. I imagine the studio will try to bring the director back on board if they can.

Sony is so confident in the upcoming Jumanji sequel that they are releasing it around the same time that Star Wars: Episode IX is being released.

Did you enjoy the last Jumanji movie and are you excited about this sequel?
